Project Brief:

Blood Generation is a name given to those children who have been born into war. This exhibition presents a series of large-scale photographs portraying young people caught within complex relationships between land and identity. In this collaboration with Stuart Miller, Havini explores through her bloodlines, Bougainville’s recent dark history of war and the impacts of mining.

‘Land is our Life. Land is our physical life – food and sustenance. Land is our social life; it is marriage; it is status; it is security; it is politics; in fact it is our only world’.

Sista Girl Productions acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which we work, live and create – the Wurundjeri people and Elders past and present of the Kulin nations.
